We have locations in LONDON, LEEDS and MANCHESTER.
HOW DO I BECOME PART OF THE ELITE TEAM?
We hold auditions in London, Leeds and Manchester to audition children aged 7-18 years old into the Elite Team. See Auditions tab for our upcoming events and to book.
HOW MANY WEEKS A YEAR DO I TRAIN DURING THE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS WITH STAGEBOX FOR?
We train our Elite Team during the school holidays for 5 weeks per academic year.
Children are also able to access our masterclass programme alongside further top industry professionals. We have chosen to train the children during the school holidays as this allows us to work with them more intensively and gives us more training time than ordinary weekly classes. As all of our team are industry professionals, our innovative format allows us to give the children industry “on-the-job” training which rivals full time theatre schools nationally.
HOW MANY CHILDREN DO YOU ACCEPT INTO EACH ELITE TEAM?
Competition is extremely high for places on our Elite Team programme. Whilst hundreds of talented children audition across the UK, we cap our numbers per city.
This ensures that we know all our Elite Team members and we can offer an individualised programme. It also allows us to work intensively with every child and their parents to ensure a personal and comprehensive service.
We pride ourselves on our pastoral yet professional approach.
We also offer extensive scholarships, bursaries and payment plans.
CAN MY CHILD ATTEND STAGEBOX IF THEY ALREADY ATTEND OTHER DANCE/MUSICAL THEATRE GROUPS?
Yes of course! We work alongside the top dance schools and general musical theatre providers to ensure high quality training (the majority of our pupils partake in numerous dance classes a week). We offer ‘the next step’ in musical theatre training and opportunities for aspirational pupils.
WHAT WILL YOUR AUDITION WORKSHOP DAY INVOLVED
There will be a workshop in singing, dancing and acting through song. There is nothing to prepare in advance. The session is run by experienced and friendly professionals who are used to dealing with child casting. The casting team will also be assisted by creative chaperone company, Bea & Co. who will ensure that all auditionees are looked after. Our main aim is that all auditionees take something away from the experience.
HOW MUCH DOES TRAINING COST FOR SUCCESSFUL AUDITIONEES
Our London training costs £220 per workshop week inclusive of all training, video shoots and live performance opportunities.
Our Leeds & Manchester training costs £180 per workshop week inclusive of all training, video shoots and live performance opportunities.
An extensive scholarship and bursary plan is also in place meaning we are able to accept the most talented performers regardless of financial ability.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL TRAINING TAKE PLACE?
Training for our London Elite Team will take place at Danceworks, Mayfair during the main school holidays from 10am-4pm and we will be filming on location for our video shoots in Central London. Training for the Manchester Elite Team takes place at Manchester Creative & Media Academy. Training for the Leeds Elite Team takes place at Yorkshire Dance.
